The Importance of Tailored UM/UIM Discovery Requests

UM carriers present unique challenges in discovery, distinct from typical at-fault defendants. Using generic discovery templates can lead to ineffective results. Our meticulously crafted template provides a solid foundation for your UM/UIM cases, addressing the unique challenges of UM carrier discovery requests and litigation. It helps you:

Efficiently Gather Key Information: Targeted admissions and interrogatories enable you to thoroughly address every critical aspect of your case, from policy nuances to incident specifics.

Streamline Document Collection: Our request for the production of documents ensures comprehensive evidence gathering, enhancing the thoroughness and efficiency of your case preparation.

No Yarbrough Dismissals Until Discovery Is Complete

It's crucial to hold off on seeking a Yarbrough dismissal, as referenced in Yarbrough v. Dickinson, until the completion of discovery. Prematurely allowing a UM carrier to exit the case could mean overlooking vital discovery materials. UM carriers often possess critical information, such as photographs, videos, estimates, recorded statements, and signed selection rejection forms that can pivot the direction and outcome of a case. Ensuring comprehensive discovery before considering a Yarbrough dismissal is not just procedural; it's a strategic necessity for maximizing your client's claim potential.

App. 614, 203 S.E.2d 903 (1974). A general statement that the Defendant can neither admit nor deny, unaccompanied by reasons, will be held an insufficient response and subject to a motion to determine the sufficiency of the answer.

Vance Publishing Corp., 130 Ga. App. 118 (1973).

Of Tax Assessors, 268 Ga. 327 (1997), Reversing G.H. Bass & Co. v. Fulton County Bd. Of Tax Assessors, 222 Ga. App. 118 (1996).
